Discover Villa Clichy!

“Welcome to Villa Clichy, I’m Vanessa and I’m here today as your guide. I will be your reference point during your stay here in this amazing Villa. Let’s start with a brief historical overview. Please, follow me.

The wing of the house in which we’re walking right now is quite old. Recently a family member of our Head- of- the- State resided here, and even in the past a French King famous for his furniture decided to spend some time here.

Probably he even played on this amazing pool table and had some rest in these comfortable plastic seats.”

Villa Clichy


“Yes, dear?”

“You can see the aliens everyone is speaking about, from here?”


“No, madame, let him speak, please. Children are curious and everybody is speaking about this every single day. Right, let’s move forward, let’s stay on the current events. Yes, dear Arthur, if you look right now from the windows you can see them falling. If I have to be completely sincere with you, they’re a genuine attraction right now. We’re fully booked the whole year. At the beginning they were saying to have a wish when you see an alien dropping, but now I don’t have enough wishes.”

“Ah, Ah, that’s a good one. Thanks, Vanessa. Arthur, what do you say?”

“Thank you, miss.”

“Oh, you’re such an educated angel. Thank you for your question, dear Arthur.”

“Sorry, Vanessa. I don’t want to take advantage of your kindness, but since we’ve touched the topic…”

“Tell me, Mr. Capra.”

“On the agency flyer we read about a hunting post.”

Can we shoot them?
Can we shoot them?

“Yes, that’s true Mr. Capra. You will find a station for hunters just two km away from the Villa. There you’ll find a colleague ready to give you all the instructions and an alien-hunting kit. If you’ve never shot any aliens before, let me give you an advice. Start shooting the big ones, so you will practice a bit. Later on, you’ll be able to shoot smaller aliens.”

“I’m so sorry, Vanessa, but I have to ask. Even though it will sound stupid, but… they will suffer?”

“Well, no Mrs. Capra. Your husband and the others will be placed far away from the fall, there’s no danger.”

“Oh, sure it will be. My question was about the aliens. Do you think they will suffer, Vanessa?”

“Ah, ah! This question does only give you credit, madam. Look, I’m not a doctor and I never studied medicine, but I read that there is scientific proof attesting the complete lack of human feelings on the alien.”

“Oh, thanks. You have no idea how this makes me feel more relieved. You know, I’m a believer.”

“Me too, madam, me too. I’m a huge devout, as our Head- of- the- State.”

“And what about the stack? Do you think the smell will reach the Villa?”

“Oh, that’s another good question, Mrs. Capra. I cannot hide from you the fact that, when the Villa is upwind, you could feel a bit of the smell. Don’t worry, though. The Government started with a separate collection for the aliens, and the house has an automatic deodorant system. You won’t feel anything. Now you must excuse me, but I have to go, my children come out of the school soon.”

“Yes, of course, Vanessa. We can contact you any time?”

“Any time, there’s no small problem for me. Oh, and… good hunting!”

“Ah, ah! Have a good day, Vanessa!”
